Private detective Astrid Price senses there is something wrong when a mysterious stranger hires her to deliver a package, but she needs the money, so she takes the job. Big mistake. Before long the bodies are piling up, each of them strangled by a Welsh Dragon flag. Even worse, they keep disappearing and no one believes Astrid when she tells them, least of all the Welsh Republican Police. Soon, her plate is piled high. Who is the sinister Hoodyman? What does Gelert, the talking African Parrot, know about the Golden Lovespoons and why is a three legged dog always near the scene of the crimes?
As the rain falls incessantly, Astrid is knocked unconscious, shot at, abducted by the Edwards, the terrorist organisation seeking to destroy the Welsh Republic, and nearly drowned. Before she can answer all the riddles facing her, she must confront her own fears and come to terms with past memories.
